Default Summer Training

Finally done my first year at university and it's time to get huge and ripped for the summer. I had a couple set backs last year (off 2 months because I broke my wrist, time off during mid-terms and exams), but now it's time to shine.

I'm going to schedule a fitness test at my gym soon. Right now I'm 6'3 and a little over 200lbs. I want to get a little bit bigger, but mainly start doing cardio for my overall health. So far, the plan is to lift 2 days, do cardio one day, and then repeat.

Today I worked chest. I didn't have a partner so it wasn't my great but meh.
